My fiance is about to apply for a fiance Visa in order for her to come to the U.K. and marry together. However, I am currently a student and have a stipend of about 16K pounds per annum which falls short the required 18 600 pounds requirement. But then again my stipend rate is tax free.
Will it be acknowledged that my stipend rate is tax free? Will her fiance still get accepted even if I fall short the required amount? If I not meet the required amount how many savings do I need to have?
